teacher, the school administrator, and the verbal commands of our deputy, i'm looking at what our deputy did. >> reporter: fields's actions have outraged members of the community, including parents at a tuesday night school district board meeting. >> clearly something did not go out. >> reporter: the school superintendent called it the most upsetting incident in her 40 years. >> we need to look at training for school resource officers. >> reporter: classmates say the confrontation began when a teacher and then a school administrator asked the student to put away her cellphone. they say some students in the class tried to defuse the situation. fields was called to remove the
student. >> give me your hands. >> i saw his face and my first thought was, oh, my god, that's the same guy. >> reporter: wendy johnson says her autistic son was in a physical struggle with deputy fields. he had a torn shirt and marks on his arms and shoulder. >> the people who are supposed to protect my children, i've got to worry if they're being hurt by those people. >> reporter: johnson's son was expelled after the incident. fields has been barred from the school and suspended without pay. we could find out within a few hours if he still has a job with the county. >> omar, thank you. the top ten republican candidates will meet tonight for their third debate. donald trump will share the stage with ben carson for the first time. carson is now leading the republican race nationwide. major garrett is at the

the republican national committee chose colorado, a swing state, but its broadcast partner, cnbc, chose the university for its facilities. >> thank you, major. so with the new status for ben carson, what should we expect and what is the challenge for him first? >> he should expect hot attention from donald trump tonight. it's interesting, the carson challenge for trump is different than the others. with other candidates, donald trump has attacked them almost for sport. they've come after him and he's dispatched them in the kind of combat he enjoys. it seems that he sees carson as a threat both in iowa and in our poll nationally, and he needs to go after carson. carson is beloved by a lot of the same people who like trump. we'll see how trump takes him on. also carson doesn't engage. he mostly gets out of the way
when donald trump attacks him. and that's something donald trump may or may not be able to handle as well. it's just different for him. >> we're 100 days away from the iowa caucuses, 15 candidates still in the running. is this make or break time for anybody in particular tonight? >> jeb bush has some big challenges tonight, because this is the third debate for him. and the people who are writing checks to his campaign want to see a little more from jeb bush. he's very far back in the polls. the non-trump wing of the republican party, the more establishment, for lack of a better term, wing of the party, is looking for a candidate. jeb bush has not stepped into the role. he has a lot to show tonight. >> the poll shows 7 out of 10 republican primary voters are not sure they've made up their mind yet. does that suggest this race could still shake up a good
deal? >> oh, yes. we've seen that in the past, where candidates at the top of the polls, both in 2012 and 2008, totally disappeared. there is an opportunity for a candidate lower in the polls to kind of make their mark, grab a moment. that's something to watch in addition to the carson/trump back and forth. >> at this stage of the campaign four years ago, wasn't herman cain in first place? >> and rudy guiliani was ahead in the polls and then completed disappeared from the map. >> good information, john dickerson, thank you so much. john will moderate next month's cbs news democratic presidential debate, november 14th, 6:00 p.m. pacific time here on cbs. a laser caused a scare for
american airlines plane 563 from phoenix approaching san diego when it was hit. >> two miles from theground, a green laser. >> two miles south of you. >> yep. about a mile and a half. >> 563, thanks. any injuries right now? >> negative. >> the plane landed safely. across the country, laser attacks are up 17% over last year. los angeles airport has 160 incidents for the year. this morning millions in the east face a day of drenching rain. the storms are moving into new england from the mid-atlantic region. cities like boston could get soaked. the remnants of hurricane

prison. he had denied all allegations. a block buster merger in the drugstore industry. walgreen's says it is buying rival rite aid for almost $9.5 billion. the deal unites two of the country's top three drugstore chains by revenue. bill cohen is a contributing editor for bloomberg tv and " n "vanity fair." good morning. >> good morning. >> what does it mean for walgreen's? >> it will boost them. this is the number two drugstore chain acquiring the number three drugstore chain. it's a big deal for the deal size, 17 billion all total. and it's a big deal for consumers because it basically creates a massive challenger to cvs, the leader in the drugstore industry. and it creates, unfortunately, 99% market share for the two of them in the drugstore industry. >> are there antitrust
implications? >> there are huge antitrust complications, charlie. in the old days this would never be allowed to go through. this is a huge test of the obama administration's justice department. >> it doesn't sound like good news for consumers. >> this would be a major duopoly in a concentrated area to begin with. drugstore chains argue that gives them more leverage over the drug companies and forces them to lower the prices they charge on prescription drugs, and they can pass that savings on to consumers. whether that happens in the real world remains to be seen. when you don't have as much choice you end up having to pay whatever the vendor will sell you. >> the big drugstore chains are facing a lot of competition from mail order pharmacies. >> from mail order pharmacies, from the walmarts and costcos of the world. that's what they'll argue to the justice department, that they have competition coming out of
everywhere, and this is sort of an old fashioned way of reaching consumers through actual stores and it's okay to consolidate. this industry has been consolidating for probably 25 years. this is unfortunately nothing new, but this is the final blow. charlie, this is on its way to being the number one year in mergers and acquisitions of all time. i don't think anybody would have anticipated that. some people wonder, it's sort of the last gasp for mergers generally this cycle. it's because stock prices are so high that executives are feeling confident and willing to do them. >> thanks. game one of the world series was really a game and a half. the kentucky city star called it a midnight special. it took 14 innings for the royals to beat the mets 5-4 in kansas city. some fans are blasting fox sports for a technical glitch
that stopped the game. have lad duthiers -- vlad duthiers has more. >> the story line transcends baseball. >> reporter: with millions of eyes glued to tv sets across the country, the fall classic was off to an electric start. but fox sports had an electricity problem of their own. the picture dropped and viewers saw this screen during the fourth inning tuesday night, when the network lost their telecast for 23 minutes. >> we have lost our picture. hi. we're having some technical difficulties. >> reporter: fox sports said it was a rare failure which knocked out power to both their generators. >> we lost power to the truck, we're being told. >> reporter: outside kauffman stadium in kansas city, crews
frantically struggled to restore power. >> most unusual to have a game interrupted this way. >> reporter: it was determined neither team had replay capability available. fox was forced to throw to mlb's coverage. social media jumped at the chance to poke fun at the outage. the power came back on for fox and for the royals. >> this game is tied! >> reporter: and the fall classic became an instant classic. kansas city beat the new york mets in a 14-inning marathon, the longest opening game in world series history. for royals starting pitcher edinson volquez, it was just another game, until he realized it wasn't. >> he was unaware. >> reporter: his father passed away before tuesday night's game. but he didn't know that. his wife urged the team not to tell the 32-year-old until after he finished pitching.
edinson volquez's family was waiting in the clubhouse to break the news about his father. it was a heartfelt victory for the royals and volquez. >> that will definitely affect your play. >> a tough decision to make. it would have to come from the wife. >> who made the call. can you imagine the fox control room when the power went out? they freak out here if you lose a graphic. imagine what they were doing with no power to the world series. >> if you mispronounce a word. >> right, charlie. their farmhouse inspired a famous horror movie.,,
